How To Get Your Students To Love Reading Pt.2

Eva Mireles3rd grade teacher, 4th grade teacher, 5th grade teacher, Blog, The Reading Teacher's Playbook Podcast, Upper Elementary

Listen in as:
I share part two of a two part series about how a love of reading is cultivated in a classroom. Part two of this series is all about how a love of reading is taught.
I talk about:
-What to teach your students to do first
-Teaching students how to think about their reading
-Giving students a chance to practice
-Building a reading community
-Encouraging students to read widely
-Teaching students how to make reading a priority
Most teachers know the value of students having time to read at home, yet we have zero control over what students do when they are outside of our classrooms.
-There is value in meaningful reading activities, but if you have to choose between reading activities and actual reading I would encourage you to choose giving students time with text.
-Teach students how to think about their reading. We are so used to operating on autopilot and not really paying attention to the moment. Our students are no different.
